Cooked for Hired Men "I kept house once on the farm hen Mrs. Hillier was away," he ecalled. "I had two hired men o cook for in those days, now here is no one to help me eat my cooking." Hillier moved to the farm south f Brownsdale in 1908 from Wis- onsin. Things changed quite a bit from he day I started to the day I old out," he observed. Sold Both Farms Hillier had two farms when he etired, one of 160 acres and one 30 acres. He sold the larger farm n 1945 and the smaller in 1956. "Horse power was the thing when I farmed," Hillier said. "I had six horses when I started and had as many as eight on both farms. There were still five horses n the barn when I sold out." Hillier waited until 1937 to purchase his first tractor, although he drove his first car, a Buick, n 1914 and bought his first pickup truck in 1923. "The first tractors and rucks weren't so good," he said, ''but they learned to make them better. Now everyone has two or three tractors." . WASHINGTON (AP) - Secretary of State John Foster Dulles' physicians hope to clear up his intestinal inflammation without surgery. The 71-year-old secretary has Doctors Hope RWC"""° to OK Dulles Minus Surgery ive been in the Army's Walter Reed Hospital since Friday night. The State Department reports he is making recovery progress. Dulles' condition has been diagnosed as divertlculiUs— a painful stretching of a weak spot in the lower intestine. To ease the inflammation, he has been put on a 1>land diet. He is also being treat' ed with antiseptic washes. Tills treatment frequently is all that is needed. However, if the Inflammation does not respond to treatment, an operation sometimes is decided upon. The physicians say Dulles' Illness is not cancerous and is not related to the cancer which necessitated , removal of a section of his small intestine two years ago. State Department aides said they are confident Dulles will be discharged in time to leave this "I always raised hogs," Hillier said. He exhibited his cross-bred barrows at the Minnesota State Fair and in Austin. He also had a purebred Jersey dairy herd and was active in the breed association. Sold Hoist First Calf "Harvey Hoist came out to my farm as a boy and purchased his first calf," Hillier recalled. "He started his,' erd from my stock." Hillier received the Master Farmer ward in 1926 by the Farmer Magazine. He was the first in the county to receive it. Later recipients were John Schottler and James Aultfather. "I guess Lieb (the late County Agent F. L. Liebenstein) kicked me into that one," Hillier remarked. The county agent and Hillier were good friends, through Hillier's Farm Bureau work. The bureau sponsored the extension service in the county and had to maintain 200 family memberships to qualify.

Huseby, president for 20 years. Hillier served as chairman of the county extension committee and with Andy Jensen, secretary, made the decision to hire the first home agent. "We called several committee meetings, but no one came," Hillier said,, "pnd the decision had to be made. Jensen and I thought it Was a good thing. And I am kinda pleased the way it turned out."

Arvid Waller, association manager, said the REA had approved a $490,000 loan for general system improvement and installation of 20 miles of new line to serve 130 new patrons. "These new patrons live in the expanding areas the cooperative serves," Waller explained, "and are part of the general growth of the system." Most of the REA loan will finance general system improvements — installation of heavier distribution lines, expansion of substation capacities and heavier services to the farm. The association's long-range study showed a doubling of the current demand in the next 10 years and a million dollar expansion which must be completed by 1970, H. B.

Police said a car driven by John Hogenson, 62, Minneapolis, wen through a red stop light at a south Waller said. More than half of this will be financed out of reserves and operating funds. This is the normal load growth for an electric system, Waller said. Although REA has approved the loan, payment will not be made until completion of approved work orders, which means the initial expense is borne by the operating funds and then reimbursed from the loan account. The association has borrowed $2.835 million from REA, not in eluding the $490,000 approved Monday, of which $1.17 millions are outstanding. Advance payments on earlier loans total $496,000, more than the new loan committment. 4 Skating Rinks to Open Wednesday East Side Lake, Kaufman, State Park and Lagoon skating rinks will officially open Wednesday afternoon for supervised skating with warming houses.

He filed on the last day in 1938, led a field of six in the primary and defeated incumbent Reed Chaffee in the general election. Hillier was re-elected in 1940 and 1942 and didn't run when Tom Dunlap was elected. "Serving in the state house was nice, but there was a lot of wangle to it," Hillier said. Since then Hillier has maintained his active interest -in politics, has definite views on the farm programs (he is opposed to production controls), and reads two daily papers. He also watches evening television, and likes to drive around the county visiting old friends. "I just like to keep busy, that's all," he said.
